Creating Labor Codes & Part Kits

Labor Codes are used to reduce the amount of time it takes to write-up an RO for work on jobs that occur on a regular basis, in which labor and parts are always the same; example:  oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, winterizing, etc.

There are three parts to complete the entire set-up. The first part is to build a Part Kit to be assigned to a Labor Code.  If you do not need parts on a Labor Code, move to Part C.
